Michael Romash is the best in problem solving. My feet have been deformed since age 3 years. Surgery after surgery gave minimal relief until he used his critical and creative thinking to use. Now instead of taking 5 Percocet a day, I take only one if I've been doing a lot of walking. His treatment of his patients is warm, and he clearly explains procedures and problems every step of the way. He is a good motivator with a cute sense if humor. He's the best at his profession.

Dr. Romash is an excellent surgeon. I had severe osteoarthritis in both my right and left knee. He replaced my right knee in June of 2015 and my left in Sept 2016. I was very nervous about having my knees replaced based upon the horror stories I had heard. Dr. Romash put my fears at ease. His protocol is excellent and my quality of life has been restored. I'm so grateful for the excellent job he has done and would highly recommend him to anyone who needed an Orthopedic Surgeon.

He was the first person who was able to look at my foot and Xrays and see that there was a serious problem that required surgery after months of other treatment.

I never was able to see Dr. Romash. I waited over two hours and then went back to get x-rays and was told that it would be over an hour or more probably before he could see me. The receptionist's informed me this is the way it is to get to see him....a standard wait of 3-4 hours. That is professionally unacceptable. Don't schedule more than you can handle. Or, be proactive and inform patients when they make an appointment to take the day off because they will be here forever.

He is a very considerate and compassionate physician. I was impressed with the time that he took to explain what options I had available and to make certain that I understood the possible outcomes. I am grateful for having been referred to him.

I would highly recommend Dr. Romasch. He is very professional and cares about his patients well being. He makes sure all your questions are answered to your satisfaction. Dr. Romasch made sure I was at ease and knew what was going to happen every step of the way. I have had a great experience with everyone of the doctors and nurses and office staff. They were all wonderfully caring people.
